Netanya bombers told to compensate hotel

Tulkarem – Ma'an – Six Palestinians involved in the Netanya bombing of 2002 have been ordered by an Israeli military court to pay $18 million dollars in compensation to the Park Hotel, the Palestinian Prisoners Society said Tuesday.

Tulkarem branch director Halima Rmelat said Abbas As-Sayyed, Muhannad Shrem, Mu’amar Shahroor, Naser Az-Zetawy, Ahmad Al-Jayousy, and Fathi Al-Khatib have been ordered to pay $3 million each for their role in Park Hotel Passover attack, which killed 30 Israeli nationals.

Rmelat said the compensation was for damage caused to the building during the explosion.

The Hamas-affiliated group, known as the Holy Revenge, were detained in 2002 shortly after the attack and sentenced to 35 life terms each, in addition to 150 years in prison.

The Islamist movement claimed responsibility for the attack, which took place on 27 March during the Jewish religious festival of Passover. A Palestinian militant entered the Park Hotel and detonated an explosive vest, killing himself and 30 Israeli nationals.
